God’s Power Shines Forth

Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see . . . —Matthew 11:4

What a wonderful people we are in our privileges! Today everyone may be God’s priest. If we abide in Him and His words abide in us, we may ask what we will and it shall be done. We indeed have wonderful privileges. The power of the Lord shines forth a hundred times greater than under the law.

When John was in prison he began to doubt whether Jesus was the Christ, and he sent his disciples to ask, “Art Thou He that should come?” Jesus did not say, “I belong to the church or I belong to a college.” He told John’s disciples to tell John the things they have seen: the lame walked, the blind could see, different diseases were healed, and the poor had the gospel preached to them. “Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended” (Matt. 11:6). Men get mad at the signs of the Holy Ghost. They become jealous, spitting out hatred and trying to tear down God’s work.

If John did not believe in Christ through the signs, no eloquence would be of value. If he did not believe what the witnesses told him he would not believe anything.

Neither will you! If you only look on, it will seem foolishness to you as we praise God, get filled with the Holy Ghost and get gifts. But it is Jesus first, last, and all the time. We hold up Jesus and praise His name. We see bright, happy faces. We see pain go out of bodies, and we go home rejoicing.

Lord Jesus, help me to move beyond the traditions
of men and into Your power, signs,
and wonders. Amen.
